Overview

Do you like lakes and unspoiled nature? If your answer is yes, then this is certainly a trip for you! In a day trip you will explore the magical Alpine lakes of Bled and Bohinj and feel the mountainous charms of Slovenias Alpine region. A walk around Lake Bled and a ride with traditional pletna boat to little Bled Island is the perfect combination to see the beautiful nature and the city. You can admire and explore Bled Castle perched on a cliff above the lake and once on top enjoy a cup of coffee with the most famous dessert in Slovenia Kremnita (vanilla cream cake) or try scrumptious potica nut cake. Be amazed by the beauty of Vintgar Gorge where a wooden path will take you along the picturesque gorge with the rushing river Radovna and vertical rocks. In Bohinj you will be surrounded by the high mountains reflecting in Bohinj lake and you will have the chance to explore and feel the relaxed life of small alpine villages such as Ribiev Laz and Ukanc.

Know More about this tour

Start your small-group tour with a pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel, and depart for Lake Bled in Slovenias Julian Alps, in an air-conditioned minivan.
During your roughly 1-hour journey, admire rural Slovenia and listen as your guide describes the glacier-formed lake and the legends that surround Bled Island, the church-topped islet in its center.
On arrival, drink in the views of the lake and towering mountains, and gaze up at medieval Bled Castle, the fortress perched high on a cliff above the water.
Then, ride a two-oared pletna to the island and enjoy free time to explore, visit the Church of the Assumption of Mary (own expense) or sample some scrumptious potica at the island cafe.
Next, drive up to Bled Castle and delve inside the red-turreted fortress. Absorb the bird's-eye views of the lakes from the walls and visit the museum to chart the castles story from its roots in the 11th century.
Return to the lakeside for free time to walk around, and if you wish, sample a local speciality, kremnita vanilla cream cake (own expense). Then, after a break for lunch (own expense), travel onward to your next stop, Bohinj Lake. 
Visit Vingar Gorge, first touristically arranged gorge in Slovenia and be amazed by its rapid river under the vertical wall, as you walk on the a 1.6 km path full of wooden bridges above the water. 
Admire Pokljuka plateau, covered with coniferous forest and famous for its Biathlon Centre, where some of our best athletes train in the winter time.
Continue to Bohinj Lake, the largest and most beautiful Alpine lake in Slovenia. Being part of the Triglav national park, Bohinj will impress you with its natural beauty and its serene peacefulness and you will surely vow to return.

Then, return to your minivan and end your tour in Ljubljana, with a drop-off at your hotel.
